Every year Theatre Charlotte produces some of the best theatre in our city. Every year we offer outstanding opportunities to our volunteers. Every year we educate and inspire through our summer youth programming. Every year the theatre adds to our history as we plan for our future. And every year hundreds of generous patrons make donations because they believe Theatre Charlotte is vital to our community.

This year you can make a difference with your donation to Theatre Charlotte. With your gift, we would like you to tell us why you give.

Do you give because of the high-quality productions? Theatre Charlotte's shows are consistently given great reviews and awards. We hire the best directors and designers in the city. We choose shows that are relevant to our community. We strive for excellence in all areas from costumes and sets to music and performance.

Do you give to support the volunteer opportunities? We believe our volunteers are the best in the city. We credit that to the passion they have for Theatre Charlotte. Our shows are so good because our actors, who range from seasoned professionals to first timers, dedicate their time and talent to make them that way. Crew members work tirelessly (and invisibly) behind the scenes. And hundreds of other volunteers share their passion by ushering, working concessions, attending work days and much more.

Do you give to support our education programs? The Student Theatre Guild and TCjr youth programs involve the work of more than 100 youth. Students from dozens of middle schools, high schools, and colleges have the chance to produce full scale, professional quality musicals each summer. They learn from professional directors and designers and gain hands on experience.

Do you give because you care about the future of Theatre Charlotte? We are celebrating our 87th season—that is a lot of history to build on. We plan to continue creating theatre that is relevant to our community. We want to touch as many lives as possible and help introduce people to theatre. Charlotte deserves a place to call its home theatre—our stage and our local theatre.
